Cincinnatian wows on The Voice

On last week's premier of The Voice, 23-year-old Cincinnati resident Tyshawn Colquitt impressed judges with a version of Sam Smith's "Like I Can." His performance prompted both Blake Sheldon and Jennifer Hudson to turn their chairs, and Colquitt opted for Team Jennifer. 

Colquitt, a graduate of the School for Creative and Performing Arts, majored in vocal, jazz, and musical theater, and was recently featured on Bootsy Collins' album, World Wide Funk

As a father figure to his 11 younger siblings, Colquitt, credits music for getting him through some difficult times. He's even turned it into a business, Pound4Sound, which is a singing cake delivery service.
